On December 8th, Jaburg Wilk attorney Tom Moring roped in and then rappelled down the side of a 27 story skyscraper in downtown Phoenix to raise money for Special Olympics Arizona. This is the third time that Tom has gone over the edge for a great cause!
'Over the Edge' is an annual pledge-based fundraiser where people who are willing to go over the edge of the Cityscape high-rise tower and travel twenty-seven stories straight down to raise money to support and empower 22,000 athletes across the state of Arizona. The 2018 event has raised nearly $170,000. Tom raised $1,800 for the Special Olympics Arizona.
